2002 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I love my Black & Gold 3.0 AWD Outback
Sedan! It's fun to drive, and handles
EXTREMELY well in snow and rain. It's
the most comfortable car I've ever
driven for long trips. 600-700 miles
in a day, and I still feel great at the
end of the day's drive. I have only
one complaint that my Service
Department has no answer -- the
heating/cooling system. Seems there's
no happy medium for it. Hopefully
Subaru will come up with a fix soon!

package with mirror & wiper heaters,
heated seats. I love the way it
handles! Very fun to drive.
Heating and cooling system -- it
definitely needs a relook for design
I purchesed this car after my 2000
Outback Limited was hit head on at a
high rate of speed by a Honda Accord.
I walked away, she didn't. Safety sold
me on the car.

of power and torque. I love this car!

stability...ability to drive up ski
jumps during snow storms.

This car was purchased for hauling
dogs, people, and anything else. It
was driven in adverse weather
conditions of E. Oregon and E.
Washington and it was unstoppable. I
concede that it was driven on open
roads and in small towns resulting in
less stress than heavy traffic.

I drove it on several road trips. It
was versitile and comfortable.
The four cylinder is probably a little
underpowered for driving in city
traffic, but for rural driving...no
Since the very beginnig we had trouble
with this vehicle. First- brakes: car
went to dealer twice ending with
complete replacmnet of rotors and
pads.Then computer needed to be
reprogrammed.After this another two
repairs of engine(crazy rpms).At the
end complete clutch replacment.What
else will I have to repair? I will
never recommend this car to anybody.
